We had made arrangements to say at Paradiso but were run off by the manager. We walked into the Monkey hut without reservations, booked a room and was splashing around on the lake in 10. The place is clean! Hard to find clean in Nicaragua! The staff is Happy! There were lots of things to do. We took walks around... More

Took a day trip to Laguna Apoyo. And spent $6 entry fee to enjoy the Monkey Hut. The place is in a secluded area, the beer prices are great and had tubing and kayaking...the only drawback is no signage so you need a local to get you there; but totally worth it!

I stayed for two nights in one of the recently renovated double rooms and it exceeded my expectations. For $40USD I got a beautiful view of the lake, a quiet starlit evening, my own bathroom in a comfortable and cozy bedroom. You won't regret spending time here. The kayaks to explore the lake are free and the nature is all... More

My friend and I only spent one night here and it was a really nice property, however it didn't have the same feel as another hostel in the area that we stayed at. This place was much more rigid and corporate-feeling than Hostal Paradiso up the road. That said, it definitely met all of our needs. The property was well-kept,... More

We have not spent the night here but get a day pass one or two times a year when we are staying in Granada. This is a wonderful place to spend the day away from people asking for money or trying to sell you things you do not want. Included in the day pass is all day coffee and use... More

We have never stayed at this hostel over night but go to it for the day. They have day passes where you can use the facilities for swimming and kayaking. Wonderful relaxation with no one trying to sell you anything or anyone begging for money. Free coffee with day pass and food available to buy.

I emailed to reserve a spot and they got back to me right away. We got a great big hut right down by the water with amazing views! Apoyo Laguna is a great place to stay or just to visit for the day. We ended up bringing our whole crew back a few days later just to have lunch and... More

OK, no doubt the nicest place I've been to in Nica. The hotel has just been rebuilt so everything is new and modern. It has AMAZING waterfront view and easy lake access (the water are clean and not that cold). We got the iguana room- a double room with bathroom and a balcony overlooking the laguna. It's right near the... More

Amazing location, good setup, and not too expensive..take the large cabina at the top if you can, amazing restful sleep with nice views from its deck... definitely a place to visit while at Nica! You buy drinks from a separately run restaurant, but its convenient, with good service, and they take it up to your room if you so desire... More

The first time we stayed here it was magical. Gorgeous sunrises over the lake, great friends joined us, sun every day and fun in the lake. Our room was clean and spacious. Some members of staff were a little cold towards us but mostly nice. The groundskeeper was great, he showed us where some howler monkeys were, they were so... More
